Greetings to the Gentles of Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for November detailing what  
is new in the Florilegium this month.

I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have  
researched a little known subject in our period or you practice a  
little known art or craft, writing an article is an excellent way to  
introduce others to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in  
academic papers written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few  
have time at such an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them  
published in the Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire  
Known World.

If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get a copy of this  
monthly article for your print newsletter several weeks before I post  
it to the mail lists, please contact me. If you publish a newsletter  
on the web, I also have a version of this article which includes the  
links for each file. If you would like to get on my list for the web  
version of this article, please email me.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past nineteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been  
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail  
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make  
this information available to others, I have placed this information  
in a collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article  
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me  
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. A&S documentation and class  
handouts will also often work out well. I am especially interested in  
A&S papers.
